Fabulous time

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property and host family a delight - on hand if any problems (unlikely) but not at all imposing. Excellent location, close to main road (but not too close!), excellent supermarkets, excellent eating house (Bayview Bar). Lovely countryside - both the coast and inland, especially if you are into nature, walking, cycling etc. The 9-hole golf course on Cruit Island is stunning.

Lovely property, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in Donegal, exploring the coast and countryside of this north western corner of Eire. There's lots to see and do and the mountainous terrain of Donegal is wild, lonely and very picturesque with lots of quiet lanes and byways to explore.

The cottage is a good size and very comfortable. Pretty well everything we needed for our stay was there, including a nice selection of food items to get us started with our first breakfast. The setting by the small lake is lovely, it's just a shame that it's not possible to appreciate it fully from the cottage itself since it's set back to the side and behind the main house. However, on a good day, it would be possible to sit out by the lake and enjoy the tranquil setting - unfortunately we had rather a lot of rain so couldn't do that!

Christina and Ben were wonderful hosts, offering suggestions of where to go and what to see, even offering us the use of their bikes if we wanted to use them, and keen to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one.

We would heartily recommend this cottage to anyone who wanted a quiet stay in Donegal.

This cottage is bathed in comfort , set in beautiful grounds.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is loving owned by a beautiful family who warmly welcomed us on arrival . Offered additional assistance if required and made myself and my family feel truly welcome . Check in and check out was easy , a relaxed approach that allowed departure stress free , particularly with unmotivated teenagers and a car full of belongings.

I would highly recommend you consider this cottage . It has a great location, very relaxing although activities of all kinds are close by.

It was wonderful having a good washing machine , tumble dryer and iron as I had three teenagers with me . The beds are comfortable with good quality linen .

A hidden gem in an amazing part of the world .

Further Details:

Dungloe is situated on the West Coast of Donegal, which shares in some of the most stunning and unspoilt scenery in Ireland.

Its rugged cliffs lean into the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean and then onto one of the hundreds of white sand beaches, which surround this coastline.

Moving inland the majestic Mount Errigal or deceiving Muckish mountain among many can be found thus making this side of Donegal an explorers paradise, whether that be on foot, horseback or indeed by boat.

The waters hugging this coastline are renowned for their variety of fish. You will find plenty offers of a trip offshore in order that you may go in search of your own 'catch of the day'.

For those of you who prefer dry land, there are over 130 lakes alone within the local area known as The Rosses together with a selection of challenging rivers.

Throughout the year, Dungloe Town offers entertainment to suit all tastes and palates where music and food are concerned. However during the months of June, July, August and September, the local towns and villages host their individual festivals. The most famous of these is the International Mary From Dungloe Festival, which is held in July. The festivals aim to include the whole family so there is always something happening on a daily basis.

So this is 'Sweet Dungloe' in the heart of the beautiful Rosses where there is as much or as little for you to do as you wish amidst the natural unspoilt beauty of Donegal.
